Please note that this seminar will not be webcasted/recorded. There is no need to register for the seminar, but please arrive early as seating is limited.

The Art of Plain Language

"Good English consists less in observance of grammatical pedantries than in a capacity to express oneself simply and neatly."

                                                                                    Sir Ernest Gowers

In our 45 minutes together on Friday, we'll review some key principles that help readers understand words, sentences, paragraphs, and documents.
Handouts will help you to further explore those and other principles for plain-and effective-language.
